Chateau en Espagne by Carel Willink, 1939.

The statue in the foreground is the Apollo Belvedere, a marble statue believed to be a 

Roman copy circa 120-140 C.E. of a lost bronze original made between 350 and 325 B.C.E. by the Greek sculptor Leochares. It is sometimes called the Pythian Apollo, because the figure is depicted in moment after the arrow has been let fly from the archer’s bow.
